Accurately measured line-of-sight azimuths in degrees
for BML Cam1 (Jonas Ridge)
Note that these lines of sights include prominent geographic landmarks, fortuitous Moon rises, airports/heliports where lighted aircraft were photographed landing or taking off, and our own staged light tests at known sites on Brown Mountain. Various software programs were used to measure the azimuths correctly. The majority of the lights beyond Brown Mountain are those of Lenoir and some of the communities immediately south of town. However some tall communication tower lights of Statesville are visible on the far horizon near the middle of the image. Only the northern-most 1/4 of Brown Mountain itself is visible within the camera's field of view and the city of Hickory is out of view far to the south (right).
